CSATs will go on with or without Covid-19

September 23, 2020

Original Article: Korea Joongang Daily

High school seniors in quarantine for the coronavirus will be able to take the national college entrance exam in December — but in different places depending on whether they've tested positive or not.

In its latest set of guidelines for the upcoming College Scholastic Ability Test (CSAT), scheduled for Dec. 3, the Ministry of Education vowed Tuesday that all students would be able to put themselves through the ordeal, but will be divided into three key categories: healthy test-takers, those in self-quarantine and Covid-19 patients.

Some 480,000 people are expected to take this year’s CSAT at some 1,185 testing sites, said the ministry.

Covid-19 students will be able to take the standardized test wherever they are on Dec. 3 — either at a hospital, in case they are in serious condition, or a government-run treatment facility, in case they have mild symptoms.  
Those in self-quarantine will take the test at a designated site “separated” from ordinary testing sites, the Ministry of Education said in a statement. It was not immediately clear whether each student in this category will be placed in separate rooms.
